Abstract

There are many reasons for comparing Gramsci and the members of the so called Bachtin’s circle – i. e., Michail Bachtin, Valentin Vološinov and Pavel Medvedev. This study explores some of these reasons. Although very different thinkers, Gramsci and the Bachtin’s group shared a similar intellectual heritage and developed many close formulations about the relationship between language, ideology and hegemony. They adopted a similar key notion that a language embodies a worldview and emphasize that translation is not a question of transferring content from one language to another. This study also shows the importance of Gramsci and Bachtin’s relationship between science, reason and language. This relationship is conceived by them both as a process of translating different languages. The present work concludes with the identification of characteristics shared by the philosophers regarding their translation’s theory and the possibility of using translation for political agenda and political engagement.
